Do you recall this from my last post?
One of the classes I’m teaching on behalf of Distinctive Sewing Supplies; at the Fall CreativFestival, at the International Center in Toronto October 26-28 (more details are coming soon)
One Pattern = 3 Different Tees
Working from a commercial sewing pattern with a round (not “V”) neckline, Yvette (that’s me) will teach some basic pattern personalization, creating 3 adaptations, an inverted front pleat, adding an extended sleeve cap, and adding side drapes. Suggested patterns include: Jalie 2805, Burda 6749 or 6611
So now not only am I a “Pattern Hacker” but I’ll be teaching others how to “Pattern Hack”. Go figure.
Today I’m featuring my hack to Jalie 2805 Women’s Tee Shirts. note: apparently I sometimes forget to smile while concentrating on using the remote for my camera.
I used an ITY from Distinctive Sewing Supplies in a dark navy colour, it’s so comfortable and cool to wear, that I’ll enjoy wearing it well into the cooler weather of fall.
The pattern; Jalie 2805 Women’s T-Shirts was provided to me at no charge by Distinctive Sewing Supplies, so I could make it, review it, hack it, teach the hack, and then wear it with pleasure. It’s one of those patterns that will never go out of style, a real staple in my sewing pantry.
After tracing off a front and back pattern piece, I deepened the front neck, extended the shoulders to just past the shoulders, and added side drapes.
I completed my T by using a rolled edge finish for the sleeves and draped hem, and a turned to the inside band.
In this hands-on class, you’ll arrive with the front and back of your pattern traced off, and a ruler, pencils and a roll of pattern paper, and I’ll teach you how to hack your own pattern.
I don’t have the info on the time of my class yet, but if you attend, please let me know if you follow Distinctive Sewing Supplies or my blog.
